    She makes her own bed, scoops the cat boxes, and spends most of her time reading. Really, she's no trouble!
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Cure her of text-ese, and I might think again - for the scooping.

    That she only does in texts. Her school essays are really well-written.

    Sounds too good to be true. You must be a helluva mom! Or very lucky indeed.

    Full forms read better but when I text abroad or I'm in a hurry, I do whatever it takes to keep my message understandable but short, so "u" or "ur" sneak in there. However, I've never liked "<3" or going for "luv you". You just have to 'love' properly ;)

    Well, maybe both. The other one doesn't make her bed, but she does make great cookies. Or at least she does when her mom isn't trying to lose weight.

    God, I wish I had some cookies.
